Lemon Drizzle Loaf

By Mariella Forte | 15 Oct 2018 | RECIPES

This loaf is fresh, zesty and moist. I make it on a Sunday and divide it into 12 ready for lunchboxes the week ahead. It freezes really well making it ideal for meal planning. I’d love to make an orange variation of this guy… Post your pictures on Instagram with the hashtag #skinnybakeryrecipe and we will mention you in our stories. 🍋
